    Stock ? Nearly You'll see !

    Concerning the options, I'm going to receive some stock parts for my RPM axle carriers (pivot balls, caps, dust boots...). And in March I will receive all the options I need to build the roller !!

    Go with the MMMcombo. I use to run the novak no complains. But the MMM is just as smooth but defiantly more torque. Plus then you have the option to show off with 6s or run 5s. Not to mention its not much that more $$ then the novak.

    Thanks E-maxx Sweden
    I will use the Novak HV Pro 6.5 system I won't join the flock of the addicts of high speed

    I think the slipperential is above all for racers. I need to do wheelies, I'm a basher and express rock-crawler, I think you know that


    The last parts for my roller are on the way ! New pics and start of the build very soon

    I said express
    No need of the T-Lock™ remote locking diffs, two speed ratios, big tires, realistic body, crawling motor, etc.

    That's looking sweet! That big old parcel looks like it came from the USA! That looks like a customs sticker to me!! I get far to many of them (import tax).

    I'll be watching for when those shoes and shell arrive

    Thanks all

    carraig042 : this is weird because I hated the grey color of the parts of my E-Maxx so I dyed them in black, but for the E-Revo it's different, I don't know why. I keep it grey for the moment

    I rarely see you on the forum eemmaaxxxx, welcome back Yes I buy all the RC parts on Tower Hobbies or ebay. Here in France the prices are crazy

    I can't wait to see new pics in your build thread E-maxx Sweden

    Hi Popoxx. I've had about a four month break. I've had a go with a crawler which is waiting for parts, so I'm back to working on the Maxx's. Good to see your still building! Good luck.

    I apologize if this was already asked but I didn't have to read through all the posts, but how much did building it from scratch like that cost? I've been wanting to do that for a long time but thought that building one would be more expensive than buying one RTR.

    Nice build. I'm beginning to do the same with another Revo 3.3. I have many, many stock parts left over from my current 3.3. Using Ebay, I have it firgured I will have another Revo running for under $150 (not too bad). Hopefully I can maybe convince my wife to run it.

    Again, thanks all for your comments !

    OM514 : the total cost depends on what you want to do I bought all the stock parts on ebay (~$180 w/o shipping charges) and all the options on Tower Hobbies (~$1000 all included - BL system, radio, tires/wheels, servos, etc. w/o shipping charges). If you want to build a stock E-Revo, buy the RTR kit directly. In fact, buy the RTR kit except if you want to upgrade it directly, like me

    ajb1205 : yes ebay is a great place to buy cheap stock parts Start your build thread and post a vid of your wife driving your MT, it could be funny

    Thanks all !! (yes I know this is the third times I say that in this page )

    Where I find the money ? I have a secret : I work

    To remove the anodize I use a French oven cleaner. I don't know if it's available in UK but Greased Lightning works great (http://monster.traxxas.com/showpost....8&postcount=15)

    I love those lunsford Ti rocker posts. I have em outfitted in both my trucks. So ridiculously light.

    Nice looking truck

    I run the Traxxas 7075 hard-anodized aluminum rocker posts, which are even lighter than the Lunsford Ti ones!

    Also, use the Easy-Off Oven Cleaner (the can with the yellow cap), it works the best for removing anodizing, as well as removing the chrome on wheels, bumpers, or any other chrome-plated plastic part.
